The Custom Limited Edition knife (Year 2021 Special Limited Edition) is from the great Master Hattori !
Master Hattori chose to use a very unique and beautiful Green Malachite GemStone Handle. The Green Malachite Gemstone Handle has a beautiful appearance and to ensure that it can be gripped comfortably, it has been carefully contoured and polished by hand. The full tang is taper ground to reduce weight and perfect balance.
Each Hattori Custom Limited Edition Santoku knife is "One-of-a-Kind" and comes with the Serial No. and available with only 10Pcs. (Serial No.1 (01-2021) to No.10(10-2021))
After years of the collaborative work with the Knife Forums "In the Kitchen" members and the premier knife maker, Mr.Ichiro Hattori, we are proud to introduce our first JCK Original, FH Series Hattori / Forums high end Chef's knives.
Hattori FH Series knife is produced in very small batches to ensure a high level of quality and performance. Every detail in design and manufacture has been taken into consideration from the special heat treat process, to the hand contoured handle and to the balance, ergonomics and profile of each knife.
The blade is made of VG-10 Cobalt Steel (HRC60 to 61). Even though it is simple appearance, we can feel the Hattori’s detailed works high level of craftsmanship from finely hand sharpened and polished blade.
The tall blade and rounded nose / tip of the Santoku make it a versatile knife that is well suited to cutting meat, fish, or vegetables; Hence it’s name, which literally means “Three-purpose”. The Santoku is often recommended as a multi-purpose kitchen knife.

This knife comes with 50/50 double bevel edge geometry for both right and left handed use.
For your information, Japanese Kitchen knives are generally designed for right hand use with a slightly thicker and rounded grinding on the right side blade and a less rounded (almost straight flat) grinding on the left side blade. However, both right and left hander can use the knives that have double bevel edge sharpened 50/50 without problems.
We believe the quality and cutting performance of Japanese knives are the best in the world, and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and sharp edge with your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for long times.
This is the Stainless steel blade kitchen knife that has a good rust resistance for easy maintenance. However, it may get rust, if kept in wet condition.
Meget glad for dem
I have now just received my very first HATTORI Knife and My, Oh My, Oh My.. before I even took it out of the box i saw the Malachite handle and just stared at it in Awe. And when i took it out and held it in my hand, the feel was great and nothing I imagined it would be. It is unbelievable. Outstanding really. Just......WOW This was even before i took the sheath off. The craftsman ship in the handle alone you can tell just by the feel. I know Gem stones and the polished finish on this knife.. blew me away. But when i took the sheath off and saw the steel, in the sun.....this moment my friends, was when i fell in love with this knife. I mean.. right now i just keep looking at it. I am holding it, swinging it around and it is balanced and true. Perfect fit in my hand and feels 'STRONG' and sturdy. I am absolutely blown away. I truly am. I have one Japanese Santoku Knife a friend bought for me when he was over there and was not cheap and i thought 'that' was good. Nothing to compare it to of course......until now. I see the fuss for sure and I did wait a whole year to get this 2021 batch, Serial 8 . By the skin of my teeth mind you, so so so glad XO You know what the amazing thing is, I live in Australia and ordered the knife on the 11th of August and now just received it today, The 16th of August 2021. Thank you guys People, if like me you were humming and aahing about any of the HATTORI knives, please, take all our reviews word for it. DO NOT HESITATE. Just do it..!! Please, Before Mr Hattori retires. Like anything. When it is final, it is final.
Great knife like all Japanese products, they make the best of everything in the world with unbridled attention to detail...
I like a short, wide knife and Santoku knives fit the bill for me. I own several and simply put this is by far my favorite. Geometry is great and the hadle is very comfortable. The edge out of the box easily shaved hair off my wrist. Super happy with this one!
As expected- knife was on time, packaged well, and Im happy with the purchase
